Meeting the Handmaidens of Frigga – Linda Demissy
Norse Gods get two books full of stories. Goddesses get two pages. What’s a gal to do if she wants to rediscover their sacred stories and honor them properly? For over two years, I’ve spent a month with each of Frigga’s twelve Handmaidens, offered a monthly spirit supper and collected stories I was given. Come hear what they’re all about, listening to a few of their stories of personal transformation and healing as each one goes through her own darkness to achieve greatness. Note that this workshop is nearly entirely based on personal gnosis, as each Goddess only has about one line’s worth of description in the lore.
Nine Maidens: Healing Goddesses of the North- Raven Kaldera
We could all use healing in our lives. In ancient times, folk made offerings to healing Gods and Goddesses when they were ill. This practice can still bring amazing results to our lives. In this workshop, we’ll learn about the healing goddesses of the Norse and Germanic peoples and how they can help us today. We’ll concentrate especially on Mengloth and her nine handmaiden/colleagues, each of which is a specialist in some area of health from surgery to pulled muscles to mood disorders. We’ll end with a short ritual for healing of all our bodies and minds. (Link Raven mentions)
